The purchase of equipment for monitoring environmental conditions and caring for a 13,000-item collection that documents the history of art, culture, industry, and horticulture in Nantucket. The museum's holdings include decorative and fine arts, prints and drawings, basketry, tools, and other objects of material culture.

The Preservation Assistance Grant would support the preservation of Heritage Museums & Gardens' collection through the purchase of equipment recommended in the museum's recent Conservation Assessment Program report. Our assessor suggests the purchase of data loggers to replace hygrothermographs, a UV / visible light meter to replace an aging light meter, and an additional HEPA vacuum. These items will further the museum's efforts to care for its collections in the best manner possible.
